Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Reports suggest that Arsenal have held talks with Dynamo Kiev regarding their star attacker, Andriy Yarmolenko. The Gunners has been long term admirer of the Ukrainian winger and have enquired to know how much a deal for the player would cost.
The Gunners have had lots of players out injured with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being inconsistent with series of injuries and poor form this term on the wings, Alexis Sanchez too is still finding it hard to return to his best after an amazing debut season.
The Gunners have given Costa Rican youngster; Joel Campbell a chance at first team football which he had duly taken with some outstanding performance for the Gunners.
The 26 year old would reportedly cost 20.5 Million ( €26.78M ) before a deal could be completed. Chelsea and Everton are interested in Dynamo Kiev attacker. The Gunners have been linked to Celta Vigo forward Nolito.
Chelsea was in pole position to sign Yarmolenko under Jose Mourinho but since the sacking of the Portuguese; the Blues interest has waned off with Borussia Dortmund now said to be favourites to secure his services.
Yarmolenko’s contract with Dynamo Kiev expires at the end of the season, meaning he would be available for free in the summer; this leaves Dynamo Kiev with the option of selling him off in this January transfer instead of allowing him leave for nothing.
